Can someone explain -- or point to the relevant docs which explain --
how to use the KDE 3 overlay ?  Perhaps this sb in the news announcement.

I've successfully installed most of KDE 4.3.1 ,
but without the desktop stuff, for which I have adopted Fluxbox.
I still have remnants of KDE 3.5.10 (details from my personal pkg list):

  W 090501 kde-base/kdeartwork-kworldclock-3.5.10 
    090606 kde-base/kdelibs-3.5.10-r6 [ 16 min ]
  W 080924 kde-base/kmahjongg-3.5.10
  W 080924 kde-base/ksokoban-3.5.10
  W 090501 kde-base/kworldclock-3.5.10
    080924 kde-base/libkdegames-3.5.10 [for kmahjongg etc]

Kmahjongg 4 lacks the removed-tiles display (it's promised);
Ksokoban hasn't been ported to KDE 4 (someone's working on it);
Kworldclock shows local times around the globe,
which Marble should show, but doesn't (yet?).
Everything still works & nothing (3 & 4) interferes with anything else.

Hopefully, it won't be difficult for users to keep KDE 3 items
as long as they need them & don't cause any other problems.
